Background Abnormalities of right ventricular (RV) strain have been shown to occur prior to impairment of global right ventricular function, measured by global RV ejection fraction (RVEF) in patients with increased RV afterload, such as pulmonary…

OBJECTIVE: Hyperleptinemia, hallmark of obesity, is a putative pathophysiologic trigger for atherosclerosis. We previously reported a stimulatory effect of leptin on TSP-1 (thrombospondin-1) expression, a proatherogenic matricellular protein …

The obesity problem became an independent and major risk health factor in the past thirty to forty years.

BACKGROUND: Despite the growing trend of obesity, the utilization of anti-obesity therapeutic interventions is not robust in the USA. We aimed to analyze the trends of anti-obesity pharmacotherapy using a population level database. METHODS: We used…

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The association between obesity and colorectal cancer (CRC) is well established in older individuals, but evidence is limited in the younger population. The study aims to analyze the relationship of obesity and its related …

BACKGROUND: The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emerged from China in 2019 and rapidly spread worldwide. Patients with metabolic comorbid conditions are more susceptible to infection by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 …

OBJECTIVE: Obesity and preeclampsia in pregnant women are each independently associated with poorer neonatal outcomes. We study obesity and preeclampsia alone and also in combination in pregnant women to determine their association with neonatal…

The growing evidence has been tried to explain and characterize C1q/TNF- related proteins (CTRPs) family as the potential diagnostic or therapeutic targets of obesity-related metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes (T2D), and…

Objective: The objective of this study was to examine the longitudinal relationship between the elapsed time in the action and maintenance stages of change for multiple target behaviors and weight loss or gain. Research Methods and Procedures: The…

Hepatic VLDL overproduction is a characteristic feature of diabetes and an important contributor to diabetic dyslipidemia. Hepatic sortilin 1 (Sort1), a cellular trafficking receptor, is a novel regulator of plasma lipid metabolism and reduces plasma…

Activated cannabinoid 1 receptor (CB1R) signaling has been implicated in the development of phenotypes associated with fatty liver, insulin resistance, and impaired suppression of hepatic glucose output. Endoplasmic reticulum stress-associated…

The relationship of weight and self-esteem to depressive symptomatology was examined among 36 African American and 96 European American pregnant inner-city women. Lower self-esteem and higher deviations from medically ideal weight predicted increased…

Background. The increasing prevalence of obesity and obesity-related conditions in primary care settings challenges the health care system. Thus. we used available baseline data from an on-going clinical trial to examine the biopsychosocial…

Leptin is the primary hormone in mammals that regulates adipose stores. Arctic adapted cetaceans maintain enormous adipose depots, suggesting possible modifications of leptin or receptor function. Determining expression of these genes is the first…

Objective: This study was undertaken to prospectively evaluate the effect of early stage endometrial cancer, age, and obesity on quality of life (QOL). Study design: Women undergoing surgery for endometrial cancer or an adnexal mass determined at…

It is a privilege and an honor for met to have the opportunity to serve as the 31st president of the American Society for Parental and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.) and to deliver the 2008 Presidential Address. I will review how our Society was…

Objective: To selectively review the dietary literature to broaden perspectives on energy restriction as the primary determinant of successful obesity treatment. Methods: Forty-five articles describing novel dietary behaviors and nutrient intakes…

Objective: According to the Transtheoretical Model (TM), tailoring interventions to patients' readiness to change can enhance patient progress and help patients use therapeutic resources more effectively. However, tailoring an intervention depends on…

Background. Obesity can be divided into "general" and "central." Since abnormal glucose and lipid metabolism are more strongly associated with central obesity, it may not be adequate to use a general measure, such as weight-for-height index, to…

Obesity is a global epidemic with multiple associated comorbid conditions. The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is the gold standard operation in the fight against obesity. This review outlines the common technical aspects of the procedure, as…

The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in the treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has been described as early as 1972 [Hill 1972]. Though a subsequent randomized trial showed no survival benefit over conventional…

BACKGROUND: Abdominoplasty is associated with a 1.1 percent risk of deep venous thrombosis. This has been attributed to rectus plication causing intraabdominal hypertension, known to effect decreased venous return, venous stasis, and thus thrombosis.…

OBJECTIVE: Our goal was to demonstrate that panniculectomy performed at the time of gynecologic surgery aids in reducing the operative time and exposure and does not increase the wound infection rate in morbidly obese patients. STUDY DESIGN: A…
